sorry for not posting for a while

Hi everyone.

Sorry it's been SOOOO long since I last posted, and here I thought I would do better.

I've been making cards for family mostly (and a few friends) but nothing else crafty for a couple months, trying to just enjoy the summer with my little granddaughter Dahlia and taking things easy.

I've passed a milestone birthday recently - turned 60 on July 3rd.  That's a biggie.  Wasn't sure I'd make this one.  The COPD has worsened considerably.              As many of you know, I've had a lot of health issues, and I'm now on disability (finally -- a little help financially) but having to drag oxygen around 24/7 is very tiring!  Better than the alternative, but still.  So I'm taking treatments and more meds again and trying to spend some quality time with those who matter.

I'm hoping to spend some time with some former classmates later this fall too.  It's been over 40 years since graduation - how time has passed. But I think it's a great bunch of people and I hope to see a few more of them this next get-together!

We are also planning a trip to St. Louis soon to visit all the in-laws.  Always a fun - noisy bunch!  And that Great Grandma wants to see Dahlia - it's been too long.

Take care everyone.  I hope to get back into commenting and blogging soon.  I do visit as many blogs as I can every single day (and I do a little better commenting there too!)

Here's a few pics of my little sweetie.  What a joy to have her living nearby and that her parents are very willing to share!
